I am watching the ski report here to see if Mt. BB or Mt.St.G. will be viable for a day trip on XC skis next Tuesday or Wed. (26th or 27th /9/17)

Good day yesterday (Friday). Very good cover, a little soft, but no slush. Hut, Maltese, & Summit running but not Tank. I asked a liftie about Tank and she said not enough staff. The rumours about lift ticket prices being related to temperature seem to be true as my lift ticket cost only $2. What a bargain! Light fog in the morning lifted to sunshine with fog redeveloping early afternoon, and drizzle started mid afternoon. Didn't bother me as I decided to call it a day at about 3.30pm. Not sure if I will make it up again this season, but 2017 season has been fantastic. Normally I average about 4 day trips per year but Friday's was my 7th. this year. Well done Baw Baw!

Thinking of going up tomorrow for last ski of the season ( first ever Nordic ski trip to Baw Baw) Can anyone give accurate and reliable reports on trail conditions/grooming ? Thanks

Spent an overnighter at Baw Baw and my first ski yesterday in several years . Conditions were amazing - my kids had a ball and so did I, albeit a bit sore sitting at work today. Spent most of the day on summit, given other runs were not available, but staff from ski hire, ski school and the lifties were fantastic. The way the season is going might have another opportunity, particularly with school holidays not far off. Great job Baw Baw.

Had a great day at Baw Baw yesterday, We arrived to steady drizzle however it wasn't affecting the snow pack and the resort was its usual quiet self. The snow depth is deep for Baw Baw and the whole resort is very shreddable and well and truly worth a visit. Walking over to Playground and lapping fresh ice cream all day was great fun. Its been a few years since I've had a chance to shred Baw Baw and I must say that it still holds a special place in my snowboard life, one of those locations that posesess a certain kind of magic and always leaves me with a big smile on my face. Looking forward to seeing what this weeks weather does, hopefully I can get another day or two up there.

absentskier: If temps are negative, lift tickets are free.
Hmm.. What "conditions apply" ? Accomadation booked for a week, maybe ? Actual worth of lift ticket yesterday (Friday) was about $200. Tyro tree skiers everywhere. Only complaint was Tank Hill only open 4 pm for home trail. (Guiding a round trip is fun ). Chains not compulsory on 4WD. But "Never be in a hurry to go down the mountain"

sunnydaze: So ... if there is this 'big freeze', will they be paying people to ski ?

Baw Baw Bear: I could not find it either on the web page, it showed on Baw Baw's Fb page so i thought we need to promote it , you would think they would have this plastered everywhere ??? Cheers
It is quite common to use only one form of media to determine how powerful it can be at getting a message across. If they plastered it on all media, they wouldn't know which one was most effective. This time they picked FB - it has already transferred across to this social media site, so working well so far. It's quite a good offer by the way!

teckel: With the new CEO, I had hoped she would make a point of visiting stakeholders and introducing herself. Haven't seen hide nor hair of her. :(
I know mate there is a lot going on behind the scenes , sadly not for the better. She has walked into a shit storm also, next season will be crunch time for many small non profit stakeholders with site service fees crippling them. We are a bit off topic But yes a lot of frustration up here :mad::mad::mad::mad:
